When we did make it to the beach, we were left in awe at the expansive black sand beach that now covers the bay. The jetty protecting the boat ramp is almost completely covered in sand. It is amazing to think that this was once the main entry and exit points for boats on this side of the island, always hustling and bustling with fishermen and children.
We had a pretty epic morning organized which more than fifty people turned up for.

Our littlest Sundot Ohana crew helped to fill their orange buckets with trash from around the area. The strangest thing being found by them was a plastic water bottle filled with hundreds of tiny dead (and a few live) cockroaches. The amount of plastic astounded the little ones, and was a little heartbreaking when they began to realize how plastic just seems to be everywhere.
A few months ago, we met Summer Martin, a local Hilo girl who works at Mo's Fish and Chips while growing her own business on the side. She uses her unique images to make Hawaii-inspired pouches that reflect what inspires her. We caught up with her and asked her a few questions after she helped us create some custom Marlin pouches for our own private collection.
